Premier League football superstars in Marina Bay Sands on June 20

Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand, Stoke City’s Peter Crouch, English league stars Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Jamie Redknapp, John Barnes, Ian Wright, Les Ferdinand, Peter Reid, Denis Irwin, David Seaman and Owen Hargreaves and well-known former players and managers Glenn Hoddle, Ozzie Ardilles and Harry Redknapp will all be in Marina Bay Sands on  20 June. No, the Premier League football superstars will of course not be in the integrated resort for gambling; a number of these elite professional players will participate in a clinic with students from Marina Bay Sands’ designated charities at the Skating Rink in The Shoppes at 3 pm.

The footballers will teach a group of 80 students to perfect the art of juggling, dribbling and taking a penalty. Members of the public will be able to catch the action “live”. Fans of the footballers will also have the opportunity to watch the match from the levels above the Skating Rink which provide unobstructed views of the rink. The football clinic is designed to allow talented and under-privileged students a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn the art of football from renowned athletes. In August, Sands for Singapore will also launch its
inaugural three-day signature charitable event that will be held throughout Marina Bay Sands.

“As part of our Corporate Social Responsibilities initiatives, Marina Bay Sands is proud to be able to give back to the society, inspire youth in pursuing their dreams, and improve the skill sets of young people through an event of this calibre. Sands for Singapore allows us the opportunity to pair our activities with our community and engage our charities in activities that are close to their hearts,” said Mr George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands.

Peter Reid said, “I’m really excited to be involved in what I’m sure is going to be a fun-filled event. Marina Bay Sands is a world-class venue, and I’m sure that the boys and I will have a fantastic time!”
